Help with a Buyer - Is this normal?

Hello! I received a request from a Buyer who refused to accept my offer until I “proved” I could complete what she was asking. It was for UX testing on the Blockchain website. She asked me to “load” my wallet by purchasing bitcoins so I can complete testing. Has anyone ever been asked by a Buyer to purchase things??

There was a similar thread recently about a buyer asking a seller to “test” their site by making a purchase.

Definitely not normal. Block and report.

Thank you so much for your help! I had a feeling this was odd.

Omg never ever do this.

It’s not even allowed. Read the ToS.

And why would you need to buy something to test UX anyway? Plus you never do free free work for someone to prove you can do something else.
